Are you proud of me?

Thursday, February 05, 2009

A question we asked our mothers.
A question our little kids inquire with their curious mind;
A question I thought I won’t hear from an older child with longing eyes;
A question that can only be answered by “yes!”

On rare occasions when the kids do something not right;
In anger we say, “I’m very disappointed in you!”
We have to try to change it to say –
“I’m very disappointed in what you’ve done!
I love you, and (not BUT) you are way better than that!”

As a mom, we often forget that no matter how old our children get to be;
They always hope that we are proud of them.
So don’t forget to give them a hug and a quick smile and say,
“Yes, of course, my child!”
